PRLog - July 16, 2012 - HANWELL, U.K. -- The powerfull benchtop NMR spectrometer picoSpin-45 resolves proton chemical shifts with a resolution of 60 ppb or better and needs only 20 microliters of sample fluid to obtain a spectrum. Its compact size and portability, weighing under 5 kg, as well as the fact that it has no environmental or facility requirements, makes it a desirable unit for lab researchers with limited benchtop space. Because of the unit’s affordable price, now chemistry students have access to critical hands-on NMR experience in their academic curriculum.
Currently, academia relies primarily on paper NMR spectra data for teaching. Now, with an affordable option, students can gain real-time experience. “As a biochemistry teacher, I want my students to get practical experience on NMR spectroscopy. This instrument and its software seem to be very useful for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. We appreciate the initiative taken by Cole-Parmer for the educational cause. With this instrument, students can now experience NMR hands-on in chemistry lab courses and in research projects,” said Dr. Sangita Roy, HOD, Department of BioChemistry, Oxford College of Science, India.
